PM Narendra Modi ranks third after Merkel, Macron in global ratings of top world leaders


New Delhi, Jan 12 (Zee News): Prime Minister Narendra Modi has pipped the likes of Chinese President Xi Jinping, Russian President Vladimir Putin, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and United States President Donald Trump to emerge as the third most popular leader in the prestigious Gallup International's annual survey 'Opinion of Global Leaders'.

The two heads of states who are above PM Modi in the ranking are German Chancellor Angela Merkel and the new French President Emmanuel Macron.

Following Modi in the list are British Prime Minister Theresa May, who stands at the fourth spot, while Jinping tails at the fifth position. Russian President Putin, Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz al Sau stand at sixth and seventh spot respectively.

PM Modi has achieved several milestones in the electoral history of India — the most recent being the Gujarat elections as well as several other assembly polls. He has often been projected by the BJP as equal in stature to Congress icon Jawaharlal Nehru when it comes to international diplomacy.

The Gallup International annual survey is going to further bolster this line of BJP propaganda and could bring rich dividends for the party in the Assembly polls lined up in 2018.

Modi, on his part, has broken several past practices and protocols when it has come to meeting foreign heads of states and has contracted friendly terms with several tall leaders of the world. He has been globetrotting to the effect that he has broken many anniversaries such as his visit to Israel that heralded a new era in diplomatic relations with the country apart form his outreach to the Middle East.

Israel's head of state Benjamin Netanyahu stands at the eighth position, while Iranian President Hassan Rouhani is at the ninth position, but above US President Trump. Turkish President Erdogan is in a position higher than Trump. The Pope is lower in ranking than Trump.

    Now with all paid ratings are coming from 'Made in America' , Prime Minister Modi has bright future in America for next President Election after President Donald Trump.
    During recently concluded Gujarat election the Indian mass media also published 'Moody' ratings for PM Modi. The European Union’s markets regulator has fined Moody’s 1.24 million euros ($1.4 million) for failing to give investors sufficient information about how ratings on major institutions such as the EU were compiled. The failures relate to 19 ratings issued between June 2011 and December 2013 for nine international bodies, including the European Investment Bank, the European Investment Fund, the European Stability Mechanism, the European Financial Stability Facility, and the European Union itself.
    Now two French President Macron despite careful image management, inside six months France’s youngest president is now looking like the old guard as his poll ratings plummet. The French leader has just a 42 per cent approval rating in the latest poll, down 20 points since he soared to victory against Front National’s Marine Le Pen in May.
    With only 16 months left in his tenure, Modi has cemented himself as the only Indian PM to completely keep the press at arm’s length.
    Having so many ratings in his favor, Why Is the PM Terrified of Holding Even a Single Press Conference in neutral avenue both represented by International and national unbiased media?

    Dec 23rd CNN had an analytical write-up on 'How world leaders fared in 2017' covering 21 heads of states as world leaders and 'our world leader's' name wasn't even mentioned. Looks like CNN's ' fee' is more than that of Gallup.

    you people have gone crazy. These international surveys are not stupid jokes to hack it and get the ranking. Voting happens internationally and all the world class leaders are ranked. Instead of feeling Proud that our own Indian Prime Minister came 3rd in ranking, you people still looking for loop holes.... and see some excuses to convince yourself. come on. Accept the credibility of Modi and his vision which whole world could see , unfortunately some blind Indians with congi glass are not able to see.... what a fate of this country.
